Wine and multicore CPU's...

is there any way to tell wine to only use one core? Some older games don't like having 2 or more CPUS. I have to to bind wine's PID to the first core but it still likes to use both cores. Any idea's on how I would tell wine to just stick to one core?

taskset -c 1 wine ...
I think that'll do it, see the man page, I haven't got it installed on this box, so I can't check.
